Without a sound business process in place, the brightest of brains and the best of technologies can come to halt!

We develop processes with the aim of improving business performance without compromising sound risk management principles. While developing the processes, key Performance Indicators related to the following are always kept in mind:

  • Customer service
  • Employee engagement
  • Resource utilization
  • Our Methodology

The changing patterns of work and technological advances bring strong competition in the market and to survive and progress, companies need to find the optimal solution in utilizing their resources.

One method is to bring flexibility in work models by outsourcing specific functions. Outsourcing promotes task-oriented environment and provides the agility necessary to keep up with the changing times as well as being cost and time effective.

Why we can deliver what we promise?

Right Team having the relevant experience in the field of Internal Auditing, Governance and Risk management.

Strong engagement of a Principal Consultant with extensive experience in the domain of Internal Audit and Risk Management.

Accurate and reliable financial reporting is required not only for depicting correct performance but also for making precise business decisions!

We believe in taking a top down risk based approach to design and implement optimum business controls. We combine our deep understanding of the business with the risk management mindset to help clients have a set of controls which do not hamper business operations or negatively impact customer centricity yet ensure the protection of its valuable assets.

We use COSO framework as a foundation and utilize our in depth business knowledge across various industries to provide distinguished services to our clients.

Risk can be transformed into a business enabler when managed effectively! A methodological approach towards taking the right risks and mitigating the rest is a recipe to sustainable business performance.

We work with the organizations to:

  • Design and implement the risk management framework
  • Advice on how to create conducive culture for risk management
  • Provide appropriate tools
  • Train people for better decision making

 

If an entity is unable to foresee the risks it is being exposed to and does not identify and manage them, then the operations and resulting profits have a great uncertainty attached to them. We advise companies in this domain so they are able to quantify the likely impact of risks which help them to seize opportunities and mitigate threats both in the short and long term.

  • It is my pleasure to provide feedback on Hyphen Consultancy performance to-date on the IFRS conversion for Binzagr Co. In perspective, we had selected Hyphen and awarded them the IFRS conversion task from  a choice of 5 leading contenders including big name Consultancies.  However we opted for Hyphen because of their promise to head the task with their experienced consultants and close supervision and involvement  of Faheem Piracha, the head of Hyphen Consultancy. While the task is spread over three phases including opening balances of 2017, then 2017 year end  comparatives, and review of 2018 and the project is still ongoing, we have  noted that Hyphen is delivering as promised. The team is dedicated, is collaborative and delivers beyond the content of deliverables in the signed agreement.   I have no hesitation in recommending their professionalism, timing and delivery to another organization for similar services.

    Senior Vice President Finance, Binzagr Co
  • It’s been sometime working along with Hyphen Consultancy seeking their support in SOCPA IFRS Transition, Audit & Risk Consultancy and developing Resource & Audit Management solutions. Throughout this association (and continuing), Faheem Piracha (the CEO of Hyphen) and his staff have displayed great understanding, good knowledge of applicable Standards, disciplined work approach, and willingness to learn. Our recent experience working alongwith their Audit resources have been amazing. Due to reasons, we preferred them over the Big-4 firms with words of caution. However, their contribution in the successful revamping of Internal Audit function in our Group was as good as we could have expected from the Big-4 firms. Once again, their understanding, knowledge and disciplined work approach helped us to achieve this milestone. I wish Faheem and his colleagues at Hyphen all the success in the coming days, and hope that Hyphen would be viewed as a success story for young entrepreneurs in Audit, Risk & Business Advisory Services.
